How does pricing work for the Drop-In plan?

Drop-in charges are based upon the amount of time your child is in ASP per day. If your child is in ASP for one hour or less you will be charged $15; If your child is in ASP for more than one hour you will be charged $30.
There is no drop-in charge for children who are in ASP prior to an enrichment class, swim lesson, or private music lesson. Drop-In charges for children in enrichment will start accumulating after a class ends.
(Example: If your child has an enrichment class from 4:00pm-5:00pm there will be no charge for the time prior to the start of this class, only any time after 5:00pm.)

A Day in ASP

Kindercare: Daily 2:15-3:00 pm

Kindergarten students are welcomed to the program beginning at 2:00 pm, while waiting for a sibling's dismissal or simply enjoying additional time with kinder classmates. Kinder students receive a snack, participate in enrichment classes or free time and have daily story time/rest. Parents can make arrangements through the Lower School Office to have students exiting the program at 3:20 be walked to Lincoln Avenue for pick-up. Students remaining in ASP past 3:20 must enroll in one of the ASP Plans. Siblings and/or parents may also come to retrieve kindergarten students from the program by properly signing them out with a counselor.

Kindergarten-Fifth Grade: 3:20-6:00 pm

Students will be greeted and checked into ASP by qualified counselors, then led through age-appropriate activities with intermittent supervised play and/or attend ASP Enrichment classes until picked up by a parent no later than 6:00 pm. Students participating in ASP Enrichment Classes must be signed in and out of ASP for safety reasons, but will not be charged for time spent in classes. All students remaining on campus after 3:45 pm will automatically be signed into ASP and be charged accordingly.

Middle School: 3:30-6:00 pm

After dismissal, Middle School students are invited to take a few minutes to say goodbye to friends and take a break from the busy day before checking in to ASP. MS ASP opens at 3:30 and MS students must check in by 3:45 at the latest if they are remaining on campus. MS ASP includes time for a quiet supervised study hall, snack, and access to the Lower School ASP play areas & activities. MS students are offered the choice to stay in study hall or head outside to play and unwind. If you’d like your student to complete homework before heading outside, let our team know and we’ll remind them.


Pick-Up Procedures/ Sign Out Process

An ASP counselor is stationed inside the gatehouse doors on Lincoln Avenue to receive parents and radio for students. Students will be sent to the gatehouse doors once a parent/guardian or other authorized pick-up presents their ID to the counselor. Parents are always welcome to come down to the Lower School.

We ask that no parents call the program directly in advance to have their students sent to Lincoln Avenue. Please plan accordingly. ASP closes promptly at 6:00pm and students remaining on campus after 6:00pm will be charged $5 for the first minute and $1 per minute thereafter.

Snack

ASP provides two daily, nutritious snacks at 3:30pm and at 4:30 pm, both of which are included in the outlined fees. All students are welcomed and encouraged to bring additional snacks!

An example of weekly snack menu is below:
Monday: Gogurt; Pretzels and cheese
Tuesday: String cheese; Fruit Salad
Wednesday: Goldfish; Raisin bread with cream cheese
Thursday: Apple sauce; Yogurt
Friday: Granola Bar; Tator Tots
